BAM will use elements of the existing industrial site infrastructure within the design to create the new Kings Science Academy.
The school, run by the Kings Free Schools and Academies Trust and supported by Hartley Group chairman Alan Lewis, will hold about 800 pupils.
Work is due to start on site next month with the students relocating from their current location in September 2012 into the first phase of the new building. The whole development will be completed in Spring 2013.
BAM Construct director Steve Wheller said: “We have worked closely with the Principle, Sajid Hussain, to come up a solution which maximises the use of the existing structures resulting in less money and time being spent in the ground and allowing the redirection of funds on the areas which will make a difference to teaching and learning, such as efficient use of space, and effective integration of I.T.”
The building is designed to be easy to maintain, and with natural light and ventilation, running costs for the Academy will be kept down.
BAM was selected for the job after a rapid procurement process through the Partnerships for Schools academies framework.
